Second Cousins

Monkeys and I are cousins

We’re sociable and intelligent creatures

I love cute little fury apes

We both have redeeming feaatures

 

Unfortunately some of us have the fate

Of being taken from out home

And placed in labs to be abused

Our destiny is little known

 

To my dear earthly friends

Experimented on we have been

A lifetime’s torment with crippling drugs

The suffering goes unseen

 

I do ask the question why?

Nobody answers for us

Boundless tears are left to cry

I ask who do we trust?

 

Why are we treated so cruelly?

As people live their daily lives

All living things should be respected

And are entitled to survive!
